The Art of Rare


 


by


Picotto


 


 


 


 


 


 


prologue


 


Picottos journey beginns several years ago...


catching fire on the first hours playing wurm online ...


sadly not every pc setup likes wurm too...


playing some time taking a break ...


the last time 5 years ago i didnt even see cocéd tools..


this will change this time...


 


starting back 6 month ago


glad setup is running ..


in my bags left some stuff that didnt decay...


first 10s for premium...


starting bulk bricks and mortar..


1 week later grinding several hours a day ...


catched fire again..


bought some silvers and prem for euros


(i totally recommand support developers spend at least some cash for a great game)


building up my deed..


making some friends ...


 


one day i dont even remember why i started prepairing some picks...


ressoures for 100 creations gathered..


started ...


rare Pickaxe...


2mins later..


rare Pickaxe..


wow that were 14s ...


how the hell could you grind bulk for so long....


 


 


Chapter 1


 


Motives


 


 


watching people in GL being frustrated on failing imp rolls ...


newbies or rejoiners trying to get there prem seems impossible...


thought of selling my xp and time spended ...


nah i decided to share with everybody ...


instead if my guide seems any help to you (and it probably will)


send me a gift instead ...


appreciate some coins or rares :) ...


i would have gave tons for this knowledge "wasting" so much time on gathering information


 


 


Chapter 2


 


The Stats


 


 


All information here depends on my own xp, the wiki and other players..


i like to see how it works for you ...


 


Rare Hunt


 


5s-70s possible per day


 


15s average


 


Raise your chances by 100-300%


 


Time played : ~ 2 month / 12h day


 


Ressources gathered : ~50k iron / shafts


 


Rares Created : ~ 100 rares / 3 Supremes


 


Predication Rate : ~ 20% (Chain Method)


 


Longest Grind without Roll : ~ 7 hours


 


Most Rares in 30mins : 4


 


Money made : ~ 400s


 


 


Most of the tries were Pickaxes


 


these numbes were rough and pretty much experimentaion included


you will get the extracted infos


 


 


Chapter 3


 


The Preparation


 


 



  • Get the ressources for the item you want to create 500/1000 is a good start




  • get your deed bonus to 10secs




  • (http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Faith_bonus)




  • put up some trash bins to get rid of large amounts of crap




  • dont count on imp rolls !! this is creation only




  • get a decent % of that tool for sure shot roll




  • Be Patient



 


 


Chapter 4


 


Rolling in Dub


 


 


SOLO SPAMMING


 


start your ingame wurm timer on 99h


your rarity window should be 10+10secs now (confirmation on 20secs basic)


that means 1 creation every 20secs is needed...


NOT MORE


start timer and created


wait for every 20´s 40´s 00´s and create


that would be a total of 180 creations per hour


180 shafts+180pickaxe heads needed


continue this until you cant stand it or run out of ressources


keep your ressources available and dump your picks


remember every walking around and missing the hit could effect your chances


BUT DONT TAKE IT TO SERIOUS!!


(i was grinding NOT only 1 day for 20+ hours THIS COULD BURN YOU !DANGER)


 


 


DUO SUPPORT SPAMMING


 


For this method you dont need much preparations..


buy some iron+shafts..


set your alt on the forge and make heads..


your main can now created the whole day


 


 


MULTI SPAMMING


 


Prepair as many ressources as you can ..


run the spamming on multiple chars...


 


SOLO CHAINING


 


Did you noticed getting no rolls for hours ..


and then 3 crappy rock shards...


(some accourding to different TIERS of rareness)


USE IT !!


This is for players with very low time


as always prepair your ressources...


just play the way you like ..


Kick starter : soon as you get any roll ...


jump and create your item


try 50 -100 creations


stop if nothing pops out ...


i testest it like 30 time


in about 20% of the tries i got a chained roll


 


MUTLI CHAINING


 


use method above ...


but start as many alts as you like on Kick starter..


iam pretty sure now


THERE ARE SERVER TIMES FOR RARES


seems to be some relation here


 


Value Kickstarter


 


use easy value items like Horseshoes..


wait for the first roll ..


and switch to your favorite item


 


 


Chapter 5


 


Try it and smile


 


 


some GUESSMATICS here :


 


Spamming with 2 chars for 3hours


about 1k creations needed


 


1k shafts = 1s


1k iron = 1s


 


the chance of getting at least 1 rare in this session is pretty high!


 


1 pickaxe – 6s now


=4s earned


 


 


Note if the maximum rarity window is 30secs your ressources are lowered significantly!!

This could be yours after some Days ;)


 


Feel free to test it out and tell me !!

good guide. theres a few other things that may or may not improve chances,


but ill leave that to the wikipedia and spreadsheet guys.


 


and this is why the nerf to rare drumroll was useless. 


 


now people just waste resources that could have been used elsewhere.


and new players only see huge dungeons for mines, full of animals that 


could be out and about roaming the land..


 


oh, and you may have just made a few enemies from the Wurm Secrecy Society Bunch.


whoever that is, lol.  


 


Cant post something without some drama or conspiracy to it, lol


 


also on some items i average 1 rare per 100 created, on other items 1 rare for


every 300 or more created. so. thats why i think those other things help,


since you said 1k creation attempts.

Not a bad concept to help people with rolling for rares, however it could use some brushing up on the English just a tad and a bit more explanations.

there is always a pro and con ...

reminds me on getting free power supply for the whole world xD

this 1k creation was just a try saying creating bulk will never reach rares ..at least for me

as i said its still some luck included

I think there should be a daily and maybe a monthly cap on rare items you can create :)

Being the mayor of a village well over a year [16+ months] in the rare 'industry' ,i believe my opinion here is of high value.


 


- First of all 5-70s a day is not possible in a million years..you have to consider making the materials which involves mining, smelting, gathering wood, cutting said wood often twice to get handles [shafts -> handles] and the countless other preparations that could well keep you occupied for at least 2-4 days if you have as much free time and help as i do, and even then there is no guarantee you will land any rare regardless of how many resources you use.


I've had plenty of times where i spend 2k shafts/pickaxe heads and end up with 2k pickaxes for my priest and no rare at all. my biggest payroll ever in over 16 months is 50s in 5 days when i landed a supreme butchering knife [ironically while imping instead of making].


 


- Doing this solo WILL drive you mad, i've started alone but quit just two weeks after because it felt like slavery, only started again a month later because i started a deed with a reliable amount of friends [and i still hire newbs and new people] of which each has his own speciality [i do the final part of creating].


 


- Some items do appear to have higher % of 'rarehood' than others even with same creation chance, Example : it's nearly impossible to land a rare sickle with just 1k resources, while you could get several rare horse shoes from same amount, this has been tested for the entire duration and i am not sure if it is intentional.


 


- 1 creation every 20 seconds is too long, i could tell you with absolute certainty that you want to go for 8-10 seconds between each creation and this is with my maxed village rare bonus. [translates to about 1k resources consumed every 2.5 hours], i tried doing 18-20 seconds based on WurmWiki and ended up with catastrophic results over the course of 2 months.


 


- Your % to succeed creation plays a huge role. unless your % to succeed is higher than 85%~ , don't even bother with that item. 


 


Your guide however does seem to have some good advice, just needed to clear these points.Thank you for sharing.


 


Trivia : A large % of all the rare items circulating the game right now, have/had*  my sig on them.

You dont have to wait every 20s like you say.


The rare window which can pop up at any time is 20s long, so you want to spam creation none stop.


I did this for like 6-7 hours total and made 7-8 rare shoes and 1 supreme.


Easy peasy.

FIrst of all :) 5s-70s is on the 12h+ gaming time i meantioned befor  ..this means of course you get a sup pick 70s max

5s is just one rare a day ..possible ....

i bought shafts + iron in 10k stocks :P ....grinding rares all day possible with an alt making heads

i made 3 sup picks so far but true very rare ...again this is an max daily amount ...going serious each day avg of 15s possible  (testesed 2 weeks)

 

as i said watch out doing this the hardcore way ive done makes you mad...

i tried grinding for hours with no break to dont miss the window

for sure ive had hours with no rolls...but iam pretty sure if you go lets say 5h with no break on this method mentioned you got a really good chance

 

thats exacly the problem i got in the beginning friend !!

ive gone spamming in the 8-10sec window ..this burns your  ressources like hell ....you need to have luck to get into the "good server mood"

iam  pretty sure there are better times for rares (day-night)

 

going exactly every 20secs will safe you tons of ressources and the last days ive tested it i got 5-10 rares a day

 

for sure a 99% is almost a sure shot and you want to stick to these

but i started myself at a 85% on picks ...for sure i failed some but ....most gone rare + you safe some ressources here

 

 

my advice try the 20secs creation over one day iam sure it works ;)

 

and accourding to wiki the base window is   20sec + 10secs deed

confirmation needed on a 30sec possible creation rotation

this is what i though too

but why you want to spam none stop ? even a 60sec window ends in 1 rare

you safe A LOT ressources creating 1 every 20secs ...AND you dont miss a window

Indeed, while i did know of a couple of villages who do this it was sort of an elite only type of secret. And yes the market will fall down because of this guide but i am pretty sure only temporarily..

The reason for that is now alot of people are going to assume it is as easy as stated above and will cease to buy rare stuff in order to give it a shot, and there is always the good ol' thinking "Nah why buy it, i will just make one later"..

Which of course "later" rarely ever turns up because, what a surprise, apparently 1k shafts [2s] and 1k iron lumps [1.5s] and all the time and creation effort for just a chance at a rare pickaxe when you can just buy one at near the cost easilyis not exactly something alot of poeple are going to be picking up on.

Thank you for this exhaustible work in research.  I feel worn out at the though of trying and suddenly buying rares looks even more attractive from those willing to put in that kind of work.  Thank you all around.
